We use these cars at work to truck around parts into NYC and im amazed, i never thought we would be seeing 200k plus miles without an issue, especially when we beat the crud out of them. Some go as much as 10k before an oil change. we had 4 of them, one died at 225k miles the others are at 183k and 205k mpg at best is 18mpg-hwy and 14mpg combined. the one that died was due to being run without oil... which was jiffy lubes fault. (estimated 9k miles before its death without oil) The other two don't burn, leak, or make any odd noises. I wouldn't be shocked at seeing 300k miles...
Stiff ride is great at eating up NYC pot-holes.. Great off road ability, great visibility and short circle turning radius... PRICE... try getting 200k on a Explorer without any issues.
